    3rd gear synchro is bad.
    Common problem in Hondas, like having a slow passenger side power window.
    You can try to use some SynchroMesh in the tranny and see if that helps.

    yea SynchroMesh will only HELP, it's not a fix... it's for your tranny fluid.
    (IE:Drain out fluid, refill with synchromesh)
    Ultimately, you will need a new 3rd gear synchro.. which i think comes as 3-4 in a set.
    I have no idea how to replace them... too much work for me.

    Fix it.

    But yea, your 3rd gear synchro is gone. I had luck with Redline Oil as well, but GM synchromesh seems to be the bitch lover of this forum.
